    Beautiful looking razor! Your work definitely shows that you are a talented craftsman. Thank you for sharing it with us. One (the most?) important question, though... How does it shave?

    No idea! I'm afraid to sharpen it! lol!

    Thanks guys, glad you like it, now what should I work on changing for the next one?

    The tail has me scratching my head... Do I thin and taper it? It seem to aid in stability being wide. Is it a deal breaker?

    I think the tail looks good. I think that is all personal preference. Most custom makers will ask how you want it. Check out Robert Williams page or Alex jaCques web pages. Jacques does some "new school" designs (some with huge long tails) where Williams gives more old school options

    PASSAROUND OPPERTUNITY

    PM me if interested. I will take a few names, pass around WILL be limited. Each person will hold it for 2 weeks. YOU are responsible for sterilization BEFORE you use it! It would be a good idea to re-sterilize it before sending it to the next person.

    Shipping to you is paid. So shipping to the next person with insurance is your responsibility. I am not an experienced razor sharpener, so yes of course you can sharpen it.

    I expect feedback from EACH person signing up, so if you can't do that wee favor for me, let someone else sign up.

    I will post a "sign up full" statement here.

    Thanks in advance!

    Great idea, Bear! I have a list in mind, already. I hope those guys sign up. I'd love to, but I'd be biased on this one, I think....

    That is cool of you Pierre, I have only been doing the straight razor bit for a few months so I will defer to the vets, but I am anxious to see some reviews.
